All Delawareans should be proud that our favorite son, Joe Biden, is officially declared President-Elect of the United States of America. As Delaware's first president in the country's nearly 250 years of history, he also received the most votes for president of any candidate in history. Lots of car hoking here in Philly.

Way to go Joe!

I wonder how Barack Obama feels. He thought he got the most votes in his historic election.

Is the National Guard in Delaware, by the way?

Good day to be a native Delawarean and a long time Pennsylvania resident.

He would probably do that. If he really wins.

I guess it will be awhile before we really know who our next President will be.
I see a pattern developing here. Transplants who left Delaware for greener pastures, are suddenly "Proud Delawareans".

As a former, NYS Poll chairlady, I can tell you that we were not allowed to open any absentee ballots if there were not at least a representative from each party there. There were very strict protocols to be followed and the way it went was one pile was Dem, Rep and Judge. IF there were not clear agreement the ballot went to the judge to be decided, and that too was with a Dem and Rep. Back in the day we used sign in books to compare signatures. Now the books are all computerized.

What leaves me very upset, is that one would think as a nation, we would want to strive to avoid even the appearance of impropriety. Military votes have always been allowed to be "late".

However, IMO, there needs to be a single set of rules, when it comes to voting, deadlines and counting, that applies to every state without exception. The fear of results getting out is what made states decide to wait til election day to count the absentee ballots. The Federal government did not want to set the rules for this and therefore left it to each state. Now that due to the coronavirus mail-in-balloting has been used, I will assume it will be continued as many found it convenient. They will have 4 years to come up with an acceptable platform for both sidesof computerized balloting and that will avoid the delays in reporting. Regardless of which side of the aisle you sit on, this lack of coordinated protocol has got to be standardized.


I will continue to support any president elected at any time regardless of my personal feelings, because that is what we do as Americans.

Those of you who are not rejoicing in the election results may take comfort in knowing that this will help the local economy with each day that Biden spends at his Delaware residences. I especially hope he will spend time at his Rehoboth house.

Sales at our development near Bethany have been brisk and I can't help but think that some of this is due to the number of people that discovered this area over the summer as they sought refuge there from the cities.

There will be tough days ahead, but for now, let us enjoy these moments.

Trump got more votes than Obama as well—more than any Republican nominee in history. Population growth and maturity is part of it, but turnout this election appears to have been extremely high. Trump found about 7-8 million more voters this time around.
